OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Democratic Republic of Leckenby is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Arsene Wenger with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate, intelligent population of 21.106 billion Leckenbyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arjen. The average income tax rate is 56%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Leckenby's radio stations, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Leckenby's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.

Leckenby is ranked 1st in Emirates and 8,733rd in the world for Safest, scoring 368 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
